F1 2021 Pre-order discount.

Recommended Posts

Whilst I understand why you're checking I do think you're worrying about nothing here. I don't know about you but I've applied free PS5 updates for PS4 game so many times now that it just doesn't seem a big deal at all.

I don’t know! Worryingly now EA say they don’t know and we can’t be sure either away until It’s released and I’ve downloaded it! They’ve again confirmed that I will get the PS5 version too but have in the meantime referred me to @AskPlayStation to look into it.

I’ll keep you updated.

Ah thats weird. Thanks for the updates and good luck! Ill be happy to hear for any updates!

Yes I also think it will be free to upgrade but its weird that its only saying the ps4 for version for him now. And its nice to be 100% sure ofcourse. And other people will be getting this problem when EA will be advertising this so they should just fix it.

Sure I know it would probably get sorted in the end but I’d rather have confidence knowing that I’m not going to have to jump through a load of hoops in the days after release to get it sorted and be able to play the PS5 version from the get-go. As it happens, the situation isn’t looking great. Sony have come back to me and said I currently only have an entitlement for the PS4 version as my purchase history should show both formats and advised me to purchase through their stores direct listing of the Deluxe Edition. Seemingly if I had pre-ordered either versions through the existing PlayStation store links that’s what would show, so currently it looks like Codemasters have either mistakenly or deliberately only set up the PS4 version via the in-game link and trying to get all-parties to do anything, or Codemasters to even listen, is like pulling teeth!

Actually my point was I was struggling to believe there will be a problem to solve. Your exchange with Sony does muddy the waters somewhat though.

@BarryBL are you able to help get this looked in to?

On the case. Let me confirm. So to absolutely clarify, we want to know if the pre-order discount applies for PS5 (which it does), and which pre-order bundle you need. Correct @Ultra3142?

Apologies if not, as you know, I've read A LOT of stuff this week on the forums.

Yes, I would like to know that the PS4 F1 2020 in-game pre-order link for F1 2021 Deluxe Edition includes Both the PS4 and PS5 version of the game. The reason for my wariness initially is that the external page it links to ONLY lists the PS4 version however every other listing on the PlayStation Store shows the PS4 and PS5 versions as one. Why the discrepancy?

I have made a purchase via the in-game link but only the PS4 version is showing as owned (as feared) and this has been confirmed by PlayStation Support, who told me that I do not have an associated PS5 version purchase/entitlement and advised that I pre-order via https://store.playstation.com/en-gb/product/EP4001-PPSA02696_00-F12021DELUXEDIGI instead.... which also has no 10% discount.

It’s possible that the PlayStation Store page, linked to from the F1 2020 game has been set up incorrectly and needs fixing - checking at least.

Thanks for your assistance.

The first picture is when you go to the playstation store without the in-game link.

The second picture is when you are being send to the playstation store via the in-game link to get the discount. 

Via the in-game link (second picture) it doesnt say you get the ps5 version.

These pictures are both taken on the playstation store on a ps5.

Okay, so PlayStation support have now forwarded to their “specialist team” between them and @BarryBL looking into it, we should get to the bottom of it, one way or another.

Thanks for replying Barry. To put it as succinctly as possible, the in-game pre-order link (with 10% discount) goes to a Playstation Store page that shows it's a PS4 version of the Deluxe Edition of F1 2021. The question is whether someone purchasing this will have access to the PS5 version. 

The concern partly arises because the non-discounted listing on the Playstation Store differs in that it explicitly shows it's for both PS4 and PS5:

That's good. My bet is that all is OK and somebody at Playstation just needs to add a PS5 logo to the webpage the in-game links to...

Can confirm that the PS4 version includes the PS5 version too. Feel free to pre-order and you'll get both.

The PS5 equivalent includes the PS4 version of the game. They are essentially bundles with everything doubled up (PS4 + PS5).

Okay that’s good to know. I don’t know why PlayStation Support have said that the in-game pre-ordered version isn’t/hasn’t bundled up (a completely different link remember) but their tech team are to get back to me and I guess they’ll inform me their Customer Service staff are mistaken.

Can you ask Codemasters to update the listing details of the in-game pre-order version so that it shows PS5 on there, as it does for the all versions listed on the PlayStation store?

I just bought that version but I have a doubt apart from the payment that is the main one in the forum, when I see the download date I see that it is planned for July 11 and not the 13 as in theory should be the deluxe edition. IMG-20210430-WA0140.thumb.jpeg.7d198e8f44b4e5151ff8472e016e9c4a.jpeg

I think you need to check your sums there. I think that time from when you posted puts you at around when 13 July starts (0:00), in the UK.

Also, getting the game downloaded two days earlier than you'd expected doesn't seem like a major problem :classic_smile:.

Has anyone on PS4/PS5 actually pre-ordered via the PlayStation Store listing of either the standard or deluxe versions? If so, what does it show in your purchase history and auto-download options?

You can’t buy the other versions because they include the PS4 version which we you already own. It doesn’t automatically mean more than that.

Yes but as mentioned by Barry and in the EA link the upgrade will be free so I think you can just upgrade it when it comes out. They just have to change it in the ps store. Then it would be more clear for everyone.

No, but it was only late Thursday afternoon that Customer Support suggested that the version I pre-ordered wasn’t a bundle of PS4 and PS5 versions. When I queried again suggesting either they were mistaken or a mistake was made in the set up of the pre-order page they said they would escalate to their technical team but it would likely be a few days before I would hear back from them. As today is a holiday in the UK, I wasn’t expecting to hear anything before Tuesday or Wednesday. I’ll let you know what they say.

@Ultra3142 have you pre-ordered either version on PS4/PS5 yourself? If so, what is listed in your future downloads list? Thanks.

Not yet, and I may well go for the disc version if/when I do actually. Although the convenience of digital is nice to have.

The deluxe vs regular choice for me honestly comes down to how significant the extra Pitcoins may be but the trouble is I doubt we'll know in advance.

Yeah, I prefer disc purchases just because I want to physically own my games and build my collection, as well as have the option to trade-in if I want but I go digital for F1 and Gran Turismo so that my son and I can play together with him using our other PS4. 

The silly thing is, for all this palaver with the in-game Deluxe pre-order, I don’t really care for the extras that come with the Deluxe version, early access aside and it’s only because it’s 10% off that I’m even interested at all!
